Over forty-five years experience as body-centered therapist & educator, 24 years practicing SE, Riki is the senior Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner in the Washington, DC area, seeing clients virtually from the comfort of their home environment anywhere in the world. Focusing on trauma recovery, nervous system stabilization, and the restoration of joy and wholeness. Riki's gift is to meet her clients where they are, without labeling or pathologizing, honoring each person's unique life story as a starting place from which to return to full liveliness that may have been lost, interrupted, or forgotten along the way. Riki is also an AmSAT-certified senior teacher of the Alexander Technique, an ISMETA Registered Somatic Movement Therapist, and a USABP member (US Association for Body Psychotherapy). She incorporates Arny Mindell's Process Work & Authentic Movement into her practice. Riki's greatest joy lies in supporting each client's unique personal process, trusting the creative self-regulation of every nervous system to proceed along its own healing path. Riki is currently offering reduced/low fee virtual SE sessions to BIPOC in need; please specify identity if applicable when reaching out. In addition to a private practice working with individuals and couples, Riki has been a long-time primary assistant on Somatic Experiencing® trainings.
